Delhi government has carried out a drone survey in an unauthorised colony and is exploring the possibility of delineating boundaries of unauthorised colonies, Union urban development minister Hardeep Singh Puri said on Thursday.

During the question hour in Lok Sabha, Puri said Delhi Development Authority was in the process of preparing the Master Plan 2041 for the capital.

“Government of NCT of Delhi had informed in January, 2019, that they have got a drone survey done of one unauthorised colony, namely Vikas Vihar, and are exploring possibility of delineating boundaries of unauthorised colonies by using drone-based survey,” the Union minister added.

The minister said ‘land’ and ‘colonisation’ were state subjects. Therefore, he added, it was up to the respective state governments to decide about the process and use of technology for purposes like checking unauthorised colonies, prevent illegal construction and demarcation of areas.
